Nice place to chat and spend some time with friends, not much to do, you can walk around the river and have some food in the restaurants in front.

This is worth a quick visit a number of brightly and uniquely crated whimsical cats. Even if you can't get out and walk which is ideal driving by slowly will bring a smile to even the most grumpy ailurophobic.

If you're in Cali and have time, go and see the statues. Not sure it's worth the hype given it by locals but it's quirky and cool enough to warrant the walk there. You'll also see some of the same statues on the boulevard along the river in the CBD.

El Gato de Tejada which is a Cali's symbol shares this space with other cats, decorated by contemporary artists. This park is close to the river and after the pictures with many cats as you wish, you find a variety of restaurants in the zone. Relaxed place to go and enjoy the sun. It is free, clean and safe

This a most interesting place to visit. The cat´s wives, who accompany the cat, are very nearby and are located in a very nice setting for picture taking, and each comes with her own story. It is located along the Cali River. It does not require much walking and the place is really nice, with a nice view of the... More

Worth checking this out. Cool art and a nice park and it's all free. Does not take long and it's worth the price 😉.

You can see these Gato's while on the public buses or in your car just traveling around the city. Most of the ceramic cats are the size of a wolf hound, which is one of the largest dogs.
